Our tank walls

Matilda water tank use a minimum of 1mm thick Bluescope Zincalume or colourbond steel tank walls stepping up to 1.2mm thick and to 2mm thick on our larger water tanks. Matilda water tanks have larger joins, with 140mm overlap and 100mm spacing between the bolts.

All Matilda tanks have a 20mm rolled foot at the bottom of the tank to help stabilise the tanks and prevent the tank from sinking into the pad.

We believe Matilda tanks wall are the strongest tanks on the market as we do not use the standard 0.6mm or 0.8mm thick steel walls even in the top ring of our tanks as do most of the tanks in the market.

Our trusses

All of Matilda water tanks use 50mmx50mm SHS, hot dipped
galvanised. Where there is a join we use 8mm plate with M16 bolts.

All trusses are welded with the bottom and top cord welded back to the truss foot. Taking the truss corded back to the wall leaving no weak points. No bolted pivit foot joins and no bottom cord not meeting the truss foot.

Our fittings

Matilda water tanks only use the highest quality metal outlets and overflows fittings.
